Co-sponsored by Progressive Democrats of Benicia, Carquinez Patriotic Resistance, and Vallejo-Benicia Indivisible for Justice, the program was held at the Benicia Senior Center, 187 East L St., 6:30 to 8:30.

This was a special opportunity to hear from our Congressman and to ask him questions. He was asked to focus on five specific issues in his opening remarks, with follow-up questions from the audience on these issues, and others time permitting. The five issues were:

  • Gun violence prevention
  • the Green New Deal / Global warming
  • Health Care
  • Taxes / Economic Inequality
  • Immigration
